DIY Flower String Lights

Making your own Floral Tea Lights is quite easy with May Arts Ribbon Flowers and Dreamweaver Stencils Memories Mist.

I have to admit, the hardest part of this project was the photography. It was difficult to get a clear and crisp photo allowing you to see the beauty of these lights….sigh. So, I’ve included several.

Here I am sharing a close up of the flowers. The Dreamweavers Memories Mist has amazing color saturation. This string only has 20 lights on it which I found at my local craft store A.C. Moore. Each light has double blooms with wrinkle ribbon tied behind for leaves. It’s accented in between each lights with tulle.

After taking several photo’s I decided to leave my little light string here. It’s covering the chain holding a Boston Fern in our sun room. Surprisingly it gives off pretty good light and it’s much prettier than looking at chain.

Here are the colors and close ups of tulle. Would you like to make your own?

  • I sprayed my white light string with Green Tea. I wanted it to blend softly.
  • Using Mango Limonaid, Blue Lagoon, and Plum Sake I misted flowers
    1. 2 flowers per light
    2. Alternating colors
  • Push flowers onto lights, don’t worry they don’t rip.  🙂
  • Tie a small piece of Olive Wrinkle Ribbon behind each flower and cut point tails. These will serve as leaves.
  • Mist 3” white tulle with each color. Cut in small strips. Tie one of each color in between lights

That’s all there is to it!   If you want to keep things even easier, May Arts has these flowers already in beautiful colors.

 Enjoy!  Xo Rhea

    What a clever way to transform these into beautiful lights. Will have to make some of these for my sister who loves faeries. This would be stunning on a round topiary too! TFS 🙂
